Legal Information -------------------------------------- ============================================================================== Introduction: About Invictus ============================================================================== Welcome to Invictus: In the Shadow of Olympus. You are about to enter the world of Greek mythology. Prepare yourself for an adventure unlike any other! The main character in the game is you. According to the introduction provided in the manual, you are enticed by some curious sounds that are emanating from a computer store. When you enter, you are whisked away to a far away land. Soon you stumble upon a headed conversation. It turns out that two of the Greek gods, Athena and Poseidon, are at odds...again. Poseidon wants to rid the world of all mortals, while Athena wants to see them live. Athena furthermore suggests that any mortal, with her proper guidance and wisdom, can become a Hero. Poseidon does not see the need for mortals, as he is the ruler of a vast kingdom. The two propose a wager. Athena will choose a mortal who is foreign to the land of the Greeks. This mortal will face three of Poseidon's trials. If the mortal succeeds, Poseidon will be forced to admit defeat. But if the mortal fails, Poseidon is free to destroy mankind. And Poseidon has never lost. Athena accepts the wager. She then turns and chooses YOU as her champion. For this daunting task, you have at your disposal the greatest heroes in all of mythology. You may choose two to begin with, and more may join you - if you are proven worthy. Let the contest begin! ============================================================================== Heroes of Invictus ============================================================================== Heroes are the captains of your War Party. They are also the strongest units. Furthermore, they are the only units that will upgrade as a result of experience. All other units must purchase their upgrades. There are a total of 10 different heroes to choose from in Invictus. You are allowed to select two of them at the start of the game. You will have two more opportunities to add new heroes. You will receive two special scenarios when you receive 751 and 1501 experience points. If you manage to successfully complete these scenarios, you will be able to add up to two more heroes, for a grand total of 4 possible heroes. Each Hero has its own strengths and weaknesses. In addition, each Hero has a unique Appeal - a sort of super attack. You will only be able to use these attacks sparingly, however, as you must have sufficient God Points in order to use them. Some of the Heroes are long range fighters, while others like to get up close and personal with the enemy. Below are the 10 Heroes you will have at your disposal. All of the statistics and background information for each Hero come from the game manual. Choose wisely! NOTE: Command Point indicates the number of Command Points a Hero will receive upon increasing in level. The Heroes of Invictus ====================== Achilles: Achilles was the King of Thessaly. He received near --------- invulnerability shortly after his birth, in part due to his mother's actions. He will grant a bonus to the defense of all units grouped with him.

However, she was a poor winner, and so Athena punished her by changing Arachne's body into that of a spider - forever! Arachne has been give a chance to prove herself to Athena, however. That is why she is helping you. Her Appeal will transform her body into that of a Spider. This will allow her to more effectively fight in melee battles.

He is the son of Zeus and a mortal. He has traveled far and wide, seeking adventure, and fleeing from the wrath of Zeus's wife, Hera. He is known for his superhuman strength, as well as his ability to kill Hydras and other beasts. He will grant a bonus to the toughness of all units grouped with him.

This does include your units. Hippolyta: She is the Queen of the Amazons. She is a follower of the ---------- goddess Artemis. She is also in love with Hercules.

He is most noted ------- for forming wings out of wax, and also for flying too close to the sun. He is an especially mobile Hero, since he can fly. As a result of his ability to spot things from LONG distance, any Archers who are grouped with him will receive a range bonus. His beginning stats are as follows: Attack %: 70 Evade %: 50 Damage: 80 Armor: 30 Health: 375 Command Points: 9 Attack Type: Ranged Tornado: Does damage of 100 and Appeal Name: Tornado will fling enemies in a Point Cost: 4 random direction.

This Point Cost: 3 can affect friend and foe alike. Units turned to stone can not be hurt, but can not attack. ============================================================================== Army Units ============================================================================== Heroes are the most powerful units you can command, and they are the backbone of your war party. However, the other units are what will make up the bulk of your party. There are basically two different types of units: melee units and ranged units. there are several different types of units that fall under each of these two categories. There are units both human and monster who await your command. Some units will be available to you from the start of the game. For other units, you must either defeat them in a given scenario or find an item related to them in order to be able to recruit them. At the end of this document is a chart that shows the statistics for each unit at levels 1 through 4. Below are all the possible units at your disposal. Amazons Elementals Archers Gorgons Axemen Harpies Black Bears Huns Brown Bears Large Spiders Cavalry Minotaurs Centaurs Sabertooths Cyclops Skeletons Doppelgangers Spearmen Eagles Swordsmen You will be limited in the number of units that you can bring with you into battle by a couple of different means. First, you must be able to afford the cost in gold needed to recruit them. Second, you must have the Command Points necessary to command them. Each unit has a Command Cost; each Hero receives Command Points. The number of Command Points determines the number and type of unit the Hero can command. Obviously, units that are more powerful have a higher Command Cost. Below are the Command Costs and Gold Costs for the units. This information comes from the game manual. Unit Type Command Cost Gold Cost --------- ------------ --------- Amazons 20 100 Archers 17 85 Axemen 15 75 Black Bears 12 60 Brown Bears 17 85 Cavalry 17 85 Centaurs 20 100 Cyclops 39 195 Doppelgangers 42 210 Eagles 12 60 Elementals 42 210 Gorgons 35 175 Harpies 21 105 Huns 16 80 Large Spiders 20 100 Minotaurs 33 165 Sabertooths 16 80 Skeletons 15 75 Spearmen 15 75 Swordsmen 13 65 ============================================================================== Inventory of Items ============================================================================== There are a variety of items to collect and use in Invictus: In the Shadow of Olympus. Some you can buy at your neighborhood Vendor, while for others, you must search high and low. Below are the items found in the game. I have divided them into two categories: Normal Items and Objects of Power. The difference between them is that Objects of Power can not be bought in any store; you must find them through adventuring. Normal Items ============ Item Name Cost Use -------------------- ------ ----------------------------------- Golden Apples *200 Heals one unit or Hero for 150 HP. Ambrosia 500 Completely cures one unit or Hero. Dragon's Teeth 5,000 Will summon Skeletons for you. Horn of Plenty 5,000 Heals a unit or Hero for 150 HP; Can be used 3 times per scenario. Gold Bars -- The currency of Invictus. Icon of Power 10,000 Increases maximum God Points by 1. Icon of Restoration 3,500 Restores up to 10 lost God Points. Panacea 50 Cures units or Heroes of poison. * Eurymakhos, the traveling salesman, will sell you Golden Apples for 50 gold, but you can only buy two from him per scenario. There are also Objects of Power in the game. These items can not be bought; you must find them. They are quite powerful, indeed. This is a list of many of the Objects of Power in the game. There may be others in the game not listed here. Some of the descriptions I have provided have been taken from the game manual; others, from the game itself. Objects of Power ================ Item Name Use -------------------- --------------------------------------------- Axe of the Minotaur Reveals unexplored areas of the map. Banner of Andromache Increases the efficiency of an Amazon unit. Bow of Artemis Very accurate and powerful. Orion is blessed if he uses this bow. Crystal Skull Can raise a Hero from the dead. Reduces the cost of an Appeal by 1 point. Pandora's Box An ornate wooden box. There is no clue to what is inside... Scroll of Valor Dropped when a Hero dies. Other Heroes carrying this item will receive 50% more experience points. Shield of Athena Gives protection to the weakest unit in your party. Talisman of Steropes When carried, gives that unit moderate protection from lightning. When used, it will eliminate damage from lightning for 30 seconds. The Hand of Endymion Able to heal madness with a touch. Vial of Naptha Gives all Archers Fire Arrows, but reduces their range. Be on the lookout for Objects of Power not listed here. You may only be able to obtain some of them if you are using a particular Hero. ============================================================================== Store and Service Prices ============================================================================== Compared with other games, there are not a large variety of stores and items for sale in Invictus. However, there are certainly more than a couple of places at which you can spend your hard won gold. Below are the lists of different merchants in Invictus, and the prices they charge for their items and services. Item Prices =========== Vendor: Panacea 50 Eurymakhos: Golden Apple 50 Golden Apple 200 Ambrosia 500 Horn of Plenty 5,000 Dragon's Teeth 5,000 Icon of Restoration 3,500 Icon of Power 10,000 Service Prices ============== Weaponsmith Armorer Trainer ----------- ------- ------- Level 2: 1,125 1,049 974 Level 3: 1,687 1,574 1,462 Level 4: 2,250 2,099 1,949 The price listed is how much you must pay to upgrade a unit to that level. All characters begin at level 1. You can also upgrade your units before each scenario. The prices for this are: Level 2: 1,500 Level 3: 2,250 Level 4: 3,000 The prices are the same for upgrading armor, weapons or health. The Weaponsmith, Armorer, and Trainer can perform these same services for less gold, but they are not available in every scenario. ============================================================================== Things You Should Know ============================================================================== There are certain terms and concepts that will appear throughout the game, as well as this walkthrough. It would be a good idea to know these commonly used terms and important concepts before continuing. Countdown Timer: The countdown timer appears when you have completed either ---------------- all of the objectives for a given scenario, or the main one. The countdown timer is usually 20 seconds. During this time you may pick up any items dropped by enemies, or continue to explore. However, once the timer expires, the scenario ends. Compass: There is no compass in the game. Instead, you will have a -------- mini-map of the current scenario on the panel near the bottom of the screen. You will notice that there is a golden dot on the outside of the map. It will move if you rotate the screen. The golden dot indicates north. This is a vital concept to understand in order to benefit from this walkthrough, as all of the directions are given in north, south, east, and west. ============================================================================== WALKTHROUGH ============================================================================== Throughout the course of this walkthrough, I will refer to various compass directions. In order to determine which way is north, look at the area map on the bottom of the screen. There should be a gold dot on the outside of the map. That is north. So MAKE SURE that when you are following the directions in the walkthrough that north is at the TOP of the map. Also, the game does not always make it clear what the objectives are for some of the scenarios. It will give you a more detailed list once you complete the area, however. For your convenience, I have placed the objectives at the BEGINNING of each section. And now, on with the adventure! ============================================================================== 1. The Raider's Woods ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat the Raiders that are threatening the town. 2.) Free the Neried. 3.) Defeat the Raiders at the encampment. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: Harpies, Eagles --------------------------------------------------------- You will start at the town fountain. Explore the town and talk to people. To the south of where you start is the Trainer, who can level-up the health of your party members (non-heroes). Be sure to also note that the Vendor is just south of the fountain as well. Two buildings west of the fountain is the Armorer, who will upgrade the defensive abilities on non-hero units. Southwest of the fountain is the Weaponsmith, who will improve your attack abilities. Be sure to smash open everything you can, whether it is in town or not. You can tell is something is breakable by putting the cursor over it; if it turns into a sword, you can break it. Homah is the woman who greets you. She is Athena's representative in this world. She tells you that you need to destroy the Raiders that are in the area. The Raiders will continue to be a bother throughout the game, but take it one step at a time, for now. Eurymakhos is located to the east of the fountain. This jolly little salesman will sell you Golden Apples. The price is always 50 gold, and you can buy two from him during any one scenario. He will appear in many of the scenarios, but not all of them. When you are ready, send your party to the east of Eurymakhos. This will cause some Axemen to attack. Be warned - they will attack your party as well as civilians. If they kill an innocent, you will lose 150 of the possible 300 experience points at the end of the level! When you have defeated them, continue to the east and you will find a Golden Apple. Head north out of town along the road. You will encounter a larger group of Raiders. Take them out! You might want to consider using an Appeal if you have the points for it. Killing the Raider group will complete one of your objectives for this scenario. Continue north for a while longer. You will meet Clio, the Muse of History, and she will gift you a Golden Apple. You probably need that really bad about now! Backtrack a bit south, then follow the stream to the west. You will soon be assaulted by an Eagle. A little farther past the Eagle is an Icon of Power! Continue to follow the stream and you will be attacked by more Raiders! When you defeat them, you will be rewarded with Ambrosia! Save these for WAY later in the game. You will also rescue a Neried, who will gift you with a Crystal Skull! (This is the only one I have found in the game so far) Now follow the road east from the Neried and you will come to a bridge. Cross over it. Southeast of the bridge is your final objective: The Raider's Camp. First, head northeast of the bridge to find the first of several Books of Poseidon. Each of the books that are scattered throughout the game have 5 pages each. You must re-click on the book to access each page. I have included the full text of these books at the end of each section that contains a Book (see the end of this scenario walkthrough for the info in this Book). So you can read it if you want, or you can just pass it by to save time. However, the actor voice for Poseidon is sometimes amusing. The choice is yours. Head east from the Book of Poseidon and you will find an Icon of Restoration, which will restore some of your spent God Points. You are now at the edge of the beach (and the screen). Head south. You will find a Golden Apple along the way. Continue south to find the Raider's Camp and another Golden Apple! This final battle is the toughest in Scenario 1. You may want to consider using one or more Appeal in order to even the odds a bit. When you defeat the Raiders, a countdown timer will appear. You will have approximately 20 seconds or so to collect loot or whatever else you want to do. Then the level ends! You will receive an experience award based on the amount of objectives you completed. Note that you will not always be required to finish every objective. Also, keep your eyes open for various other items that are dropped during battles. Some items, once collected, will allow you to recruit new units! For example, picking up an Eagle Egg will allow you to recruit Eagles, while picking up a nest in this level will allow you to recruit some Harpies. *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "Why am I always the villain?

That really makes me laugh!" ============================================================================== 2. The Seacliffe Plains ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Rescue the Temple of Athena. 2.) Save Villages. --------------------------------------------------------- Homah will once again greet you and explain your mission in this scenario. Talk with the various townspeople. (One of them has apparently been influenced by Monty Python...) The Vendor is in the western part of the town, if you need him. Make any preparations quickly! Several Axemen will attack from the north. Just north of the town is a large group of Axemen, as well as a Golden Apple. Now head east. In the corner of the map is an Icon of Restoration. Head north along the edge of the screen. You will encounter Pollux, one of the twins. He tells you of a nest of Harpies by the cliffs. Just to the north of Pollux is another Book of Poseidon. Now head west along the river. Eurymakhos is about, selling his Golden Apples. Buy them if you need them. He will also mention Athena's Temple to you. Continue to follow the river to the west. You will soon come across a bridge. West of the bridge is the other twin who will ask you if you are going to Plainstown, which is northeast of the bridge. Now you are ready to cross over the bridge. A Villager will tell you that Raiders are preparing to attack the towns in th northeast and the northwest. Once you have crossed the bridge, head east along the river for an Icon of Restoration, but be warned - Skeletons will rise up to attack you if you take it! (Note: Skeletons are Immune to Arrows) From the bridge, head northeast. You will eventually reach Athena's Temple - and a group of Axemen. Take out the Raiders and you will be greeted by Athena herself. She will give you the Shield of Athena. Be sure to also check out the area behind (to the east) of the Temple. You will find some Gold and an Icon of Power. Now head west in order to save the other town. Be prepared, for this group of Raiders is significantly stronger than the previous groups. You will also face a new enemy - the Hun. Once you have rescued this village, the scenario will end. *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "Poor Athena, she has sunk to an "I have seen times when her champion's all time low.

My triumph will be even sweeter because I choose to do nothing to stop her escapades." ============================================================================== 3. Temple of the Gorgon ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat the Treasure Hunters attacking the Temple. 2.) Protect the Gorgons from the Treasure Hunters. 3.) Defeat the Raiders guarding the base camp. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: Gorgons --------------------------------------------------------- This time you will be addressed by Athena herself, instead of her representative. She will send you east to prevent the Raiders from killing the Gorgons. IMMEDIATELY head northeast from the town. You will soon hear the hideous cries of Gorgons. They are being attacked, and if too many of them die, your game will end. Pay close attention to the battle. If there are no Raiders on the screen, your party will start attacking the Gorgons by mistake! To the south of the Gorgons, you will encounter Pollux, who is hunting Menelaos. Menelaos apparently killed Pollux's brother, Castor. East of Pollux is an Icon of Restoration. Head north from the Gorgons. You will come upon a mountainous peninsula with some gold. If you take it, a group of Swordsmen and Archers will attack from the south. From the starting town, head north along the edge of the screen. You will come upon an Icon of Power. Continue north and you will find yet another of the Books of Poseidon and a Golden Apple.. From here, continue north even farther and you will find the Treasure Hunter's Camp. Located within the Camp is a Horn of Plenty. This is a very valuable healing item, so be SURE to get it. Once you have cleared the Treasure Hunter's Camp, the scenario is over. Congrats! You most likely have at least 751 experience points at this point, which means that the next scenario will most likely be the first Hero Quest. In this quest, you will have the potential of recruiting a third hero for your party. You may choose which one you would like to recruit. *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "The pressure must be really "It's no secret that I enjoy the company to the self-proclaimed goddess of beautiful women.

But I do believe she is beginning to show signs of defeat..." ============================================================================== 4. ===First Hero Quest=== ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Objectives are random according to chosen Hero. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: New Hero (of your choice) --------------------------------------------------------- Once you have acquired more than 750 experience points, you will qualify for your First Hero Quest. After the mission in which you gain the experience necessary to pass 750xp, the Hero Selection screen will appear. Choose the Hero that you want to add to your party. I chose Achilles. After you have selected a Hero, you will be given a Scenario to complete, which may or may not include defeating the chosen Hero in combat. If you succeed, the new Hero is added to your War Party. If you fail, they will refuse to join. Do not fail! Once you have finished the Hero Quest, the game will return to the main storyline. I have placed the information on the two Hero Quests in the earliest possible locations in which you will obtain them. (that is, assuming you gain the FULL experience reward for each scenario) And now, back to the main game! ============================================================================== 5. Rescue the Gorgon Queen ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Free the Medusa from the Raiders. --------------------------------------------------------- This is a relatively simple task. Note, however, that I just said simple, and not easy. What you must do is make sure that the Gorgon Queen safely escapes from the Raiders. The best strategy I found was to head east from the start IMMEDIATELY, and continue heading east, ignoring ALL obstacles, including enemies. This will certainly cost you some health and maybe even a couple of units, but you are under a strict time limit. You do not have much time to explore the map. When you reach the Gorgon, she will start to flee toward the northwest. Follow behind her, making sure that she is on the screen with you. This will hopefully draw some of the enemies from her to you. Your first priority is to make sure she does not die; if she does, you will lose. Once she reaches the northwest edge of the map, she will disappear. The countdown timer begins. Now all you must do is avoid dying for about 20 seconds. I found that it helps to run. ============================================================================== 6. Minotaur's Maze ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Solve the statue puzzle. 2.) Kill the Minotaur. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: Minotaur --------------------------------------------------------- You have entered the Minotaur's Maze! Athena's representative, Homah, has returned to advise you. Your goal is simple: find and destroy the Minotaur. The maze is rather large and complex. My suggestion is to arrange the camera angles so that you are looking straight down on the map. There will be more levels that are also better to complete from this top-down viewpoint. It may also be helpful to zoom out in order to get as much of the maze as possible on one screen. I have created a map of the maze and its major features below. Hopefully this helps! ################################################# -------------------- # # # | LEGEND | # # # -------------------- # # # # | | # # # ############################ # | M Minotaur | # # #C # # T # | C Cornucopia | # # ##### # # | S Statue | # # M ## # # ######## # | R Red Barrel | # # ## ##### # # # # | G Green Barrel | # ##### ##### #### # # # | B Blue Barrel | # # # #### ##### # # # | | # # # # # # # | T Traps | ###### # ######## # # # # | W Warp to W1 | # # # # # # ########## # # | | # # # # # # # # -------------------- # # # # # # # # # # W ####### # # # _ _ # # ####### # # # | \ | | # ######## # ####### # # # | \| | # # # ####### # # | . ` | # # # T #S # # # | |\ | # ##### # # # S S# # # |_| \_| # ##### # ##### # ##### # # # # # ##### # S# # # _ # # # # # #S S # # # / \ # # ####### # # ###### # # # / \ # # ####### # ## #### # /_____\ # # ####### # ## S#### # | # # ############# ## #### # | # # ####### ## #### # | # ##BRG#### # | # T #### ######### # | # ############ # # | # # # | # # ### # | # ##### # ### G # | ######### ##### # G # #W1# # ##### # # GG # # # # ### # GG # # # # ### # # # # ########## ### ## # # # # # # # # # # ###################### # # START # ################################################# This is a rather large maze. Begin by immediately going north. You will soon find a small cluster of 6 Golden Apples. While this is a welcome find, it is also indicative of the trouble ahead. Continue going north until you reach the northeast corner of the map. Take the upper most path to the west, where you will find a Cornucopia (Horn of Plenty). Return to the northeast corner of the map, and take the next passage to the west. Follow the map above to the area with the statues and the three colored barrels (labeled R, G, and B on the map. As you make your way past the statues, they will give you various hints about the puzzle. Break the barrels in the proper, according to their order, which is: Red, Green, and hen Blue. Now you will want to hunt down the Minotaur! From the area with the three colored barrels, head north, then west. When you reach a split to the north and south, head north. At the end of the path, go west. The path will curve north, west, south, and finally west again. Ignore the next path to the south. To the north, on the other side of the wall, you should see the Cornucopia (if you didn't grab it already). The Minotaur is also in this area. When he dies, the scenario will end. You may want to consider upgrading your units to at least Level 2 if you can afford it and have not done so already. The battles only get more difficult from here! ============================================================================== 7. ===Second Hero Quest=== ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Objectives are random according to chosen Hero. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: New Hero (of your choice) --------------------------------------------------------- Once you have acquired more than 1500 experience points, you will qualify for your First Hero Quest. After the mission in which you gain the experience necessary to pass 1500xp, the Hero Selection screen will appear. Choose the Hero that you want to add to your party. I chose Orion. After you have selected a Hero, you will be given a Scenario to complete, which may or may not include defeating the chosen Hero in combat. If you succeed, the new Hero is added to your War Party. If you fail, they will refuse to join. Do not fail! Once you have finished the Hero Quest, the game will return to the main storyline. I have placed the information on the two Hero Quests in the earliest possible locations in which you can obtain them. (this assumes that you gain the FULL experience reward for each scenario) And now, back to the main game! ============================================================================== 8. The Fountain of Truth ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Find the Fountain of Truth. 2.) Defeat Prince Cassius. 3.) Defeat the Huns. --------------------------------------------------------- The Vendor is here with his wares, in case you are in need of anything. According to Homah, the Minotaur hid the Fountain of Truth deep in the labyrinth. Your mission is to find it. You will almost immediately be attacked by Raiders from the west. Defeat them and head west yourself. When you reach the end, you have a choice of going north or south. Head north. The path will swerve east, then north again. Ignore the first path to the east. Continuing north will lead to a large open area. In the southeast corner is a fountain. If you click on it, the area around it turns green. If you happen to be in that area, you will be poisoned! To the north of the fountain, in front of a house, you will find Clio, the Muse of History. She will give you a rather detailed history of the Fountain of Truth. You will notice three paths heading north from near Clio. One of the paths is to the east of Clio, while the other two are to the west of her. Take the westernmost path. When you reach the wall, head east. The Armorer is here, and will upgrade your characters if you want. From the Armorer, head west until you reach the wall, the head south. Take the first available path to the east. The Trainer can be found here. When you are done upgrading, return to the poison fountain and head west. You will soon come across another fountain. Unlike the previous fountain, you will want to click on this one, for it yields Ambrosia! From this fountain, head south. You will encounter another fountain; this one contains an Icon of Restoration. Now return to the fountain that gave you the Ambrosia, and head west. After the path takes a brief detour south, it will head west again. You can either go north from here or continue to the west. First head north. When the path branches west and north, continue to the north. It will quickly turn west and then north again, this time into an open area. At the entrance are two fountains; the one on the left holds a Panacea, while the one on the right has a Golden Apple for you. Now head back to the south. When the path splits to the south and west, head west. Now take the first path to the north, and follow it when it curves to the west. Here is the Weaponsmith. From the Weaponsmith, head south. When the path splits east and west, head east. Immediately take the first path south, then turn east. You will be in an enclosed area with the Fountain of Truth - and a Minotaur. This particular creature is significantly stronger than the previous one. His statistics are as follows: ------------------------- | Minotaur | ------------------------- | Lvl 3: 91%| 63 Dmg | | Lvl 3: Ev 39%| DR 46 | | Lvl 3: 63 Mv | HP 624 | ------------------------- After you defeat the Minotaur, click on the fountain to end the scenario! ============================================================================== 9. Trial I ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 450 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat Poseidon's Army. 2.) Reach the area of Poseidon's stronghold. --------------------------------------------------------- This is the first of three trials in which you will attempt to prove your worth. They will all take place in the city of Calaphon. You will be attacked by a force of soldiers from the north. After you defeat them, head north. The path will soon widen. When you reach the northernmost edge of the building on the left side of the path, you will be ambushed by a large force of soldiers from both the north and the west. The Archers are particularly dangerous, so be sure to take them out quickly! After you defeat the enemy forces, head north, where you will find another Book of Poseidon. Now backtrack and take the path to the west. Follow the path to the south for some Ambrosia! Now head north and take the next path to the west. There is another group of Poseidon's troops waiting for you. After disposing of them, you can either head to the northwest or to the southwest. Take the southwest path. It will lead you to an open area with... you guessed it - more Poseidon lackeys! In this area, there are two buildings with a path between them heading west and south. Strike the tree at the entrance to this pathway for an Icon of Power. The path will lead your party to another open area with a blue-roofed temple. Head east from here. A group of enemies will drop an Icon of Power when defeated. From this point, head south to face another force, which will ALSO drop an Icon of Power! Now backtrack until you are back at the blue-roofed temple. From this point, there are two paths heading south, one on either side of the temple. Take the left path all the way south. You will face a HUGE contingent of soldiers. If you manage to defeat them, the countdown timer will begin. Congratulations on completing the first Trial!!! But you still have a long journey ahead. You will be treated to a short movie. Enjoy! *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "I cannot believe this pitiful "This mortal's days are numbered.

Return to Raider's Woods ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat the Raiders in the camp. 2.) Defeat the Raiders at the village. 3.) Defeat the Raiders at the bridge. --------------------------------------------------------- You will find that you have returned to the Raider's Woods. Apparently, in your absence, the Raiders have attacked the village and captured the villagers. First things first, head west from the starting point and you will find a Book of Poseidon. Now head south. Cross over the stone road. There is a dirt path winding its way south. Follow it. Cross over the stream to reach the old Raider's camp. There is still a fair number of Raiders still in the area, so be ready for a fight! There is also a Golden Apple within the camp itself. Now head to the far south end of the camp. When you reach the southern edge of the screen, turn and head west. You will run across a hill after a short time. Turn and head north over the hill to find an Icon of Restoration. From the Icon, head west until you reach the river. Once at the river, follow it north until you reach the stone road. There is a bridge which leads east. Cross over it and take out the group of Raiders that is guarding it. Once you have defeated them, follow the stone road until you reach a stream. Follow the stream as it flows to the southeast. Remember this area from your first visit? Well, there is another Icon of Power just sitting there waiting for you to take it. Follow the stream until it intersects the stone road. Now take the road to the south. You will eventually reach the village. Simply defeat the Raiders that have occupied the town to finish this scenario! *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "I've lost all patience.

Treasure of Antaeus ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Obtain the Scroll of Antaeus for Athena. --------------------------------------------------------- This act begins near the Raider's main camp. Your party starts in the bottom southwest corner of the map. Along the outside perimeter of the base are some fountains. A couple of them will warp your party back to the starting point (good for escaping from pursuing enemies). First things first. Continue north until you reach the shore. Click on the fountain, and a group of skeletons will appear. They will proceed to march straight into the camp and do battle with the enemy. Cool! What you will want to do now is to follow the coast to the east. Try and walk as close to the shore as possible, to avoid revealing any of the enemies to the south. If this happens, you may have to stop and fight. Make your way to the northeastern corner of the base, and enter there. Once you have entered into the camp, you will be set upon by a group of Harpies. They are Level 3, so beware! Also with them is a Spearman who is Level 5!! This is the enemy who is carrying the Scroll of Antaeus that you are looking for. Once you defeat him, take the scroll and run back the way you came. Avoid revealing any more of the uncovered area of the map. The enemies will keep regenerating in this level, so stopping to fight them all is practically useless. Once you pick up the scroll, the countdown timer will begin. Just stay ahead of the Raiders, and you will survive. ============================================================================== 12. Mountain Bandits ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Save the world from the terrors of Pandora's Box. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: Doppelgangers --------------------------------------------------------- When you begin this scenario, Homah will warn you to beware of deceptions. Just to the west of Homah, you can find Eurymakhos peddling his Golden Apples, if you are in need of any. To the east, you will encounter an Amazon named Evadne, who's jewelry box has been stolen. Hmmm...I did not know that Amazons were fond of jewelry. No matter. Talk to her and she will join your party. A little farther to the east is another one of the infamous Books of Poseidon. Head north from the Book of Poseidon. There you will find Dryope and Pollux. Dryope tells you to go east, while Pollux tells you to go northwest. You should head northwest, as per the advice of the sane one of the two. The road will come to an end, and some Raiders will attack you. A short ways north from here is a Golden Apple. From the apple and the ambush, head east. The road will reappear. You will also encounter Urania. Continue along the road as it heads east. When the road curves, head south a bit until you reach the stream. Then follow it east and south. Along the way you will find an Icon of Power. Continue along the stream until you find a road running east and west. Follow it east to its end where you will find a Golden Apple - and some Raiders. Now head north from the Raider attack. The road will reappear. It will join with another road and fork to the southwest and the north. Take the road to the southwest until you find Thetis. From Thetis, head northeast until the road ends. There is a large group of Raiders here waiting for you. I hope that you are ready! After disposing of the enemies, head east. You will run across another party of Raiders. Send them to meet their brothers in Hades. From here, head south and you will find...Hercules? He has Pandora's Box with him. The Amazon claims that it is her jewelry box. Hmmm... Hercules won;t give it to her, so she attacks him. You can do one of two things here. You can either pick up the Box where it lays, in which case the countdown timer will begin, all while Evadne and Hercules fight. Another option is to join Hercules in fighting the peculiarly strong Amazon. This yields nothing worthwhile. The choice is yours. If you choose to fight her, though, be aware of her statistics, which are as follows: -------------------------- | Evadne (Amazon) | -------------------------- | Lvl 5: 128%| Dmg 112 | | Lvl 5: Ev 72%| DR 40 | | Lvl 5: 63 Mv | HP 2000 | -------------------------- Congrats on saving the world from unparalleled evil! Now, I'll bet you're wondering...what is inside Pandora's Box? Well, you can open it if you want. If you decide to do this, you will be faced with several Doppelgangers - all of them extremely unfriendly. So...do not open it. You will not need it for any future scenarios, so put it in your reserve inventory between scenarios, in order to free up some space in your characters' inventories. *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "Why are my troops so "It is time to summon the Doppelgangers. incompetent?

Ravine of the Undead ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 400 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Destroy the Swordsmen attacking the town. 2.) Defeat the Raiders invasion force. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: Cyclops --------------------------------------------------------- You will start within the walls of a town. The exit is in the northwest corner. Shortly after the scenario begins, Raiders will begin flooding into the town. After you have eliminated the threat, take the time to search around the city. This town has everything: A Weaponsmith, Armorer, Trainer, and a Vendor. Even Eurymakhos can be found strolling around. In the south end of town, you will find Clio roaming around. At this point, you will be ready to leave the town. What you should do is keep a portion of your forces within the town in order to protect it from any marauders, Raiders, or Skeletons. With your main force, head out through the northwestern exit. Soon after leaving, you will encounter Dryope, who will provide you with more information about the undead in the region. ================================ One thing that you should NOT do is to head north from the town. Doing this will cause the Skeletons there to attack the town and your party in huge numbers. You should also strive to finish this scenario as quickly as possible, as the Skeletons will eventually come and attack the town anyway. ================================ Follow the road to the west. Walk over the river and continue along the road, until you meet Menelaos. He will tell you that the Raiders are at the gold mine, which is located in the northwest. Follow the stone road. It will eventually turn into a dirt road. At the point where the stone road and dirt road meet, head west to the edge of the screen. From there, follow the stream south and you will find an Icon of Restoration. Now return to the dirt road and follow it to the northwest and then to the north. After crossing over a stream, you will meet the appropriately named Wussley. Continue north along the trail in order to reach the mine. When you arrive, you will be attacked by the Raiders, as well as by a new enemy - the Cyclops! Furthermore, this is a particularly strong Cyclops, as can be seen in the following: -------------------------- | Cyclops | -------------------------- | Lvl 4: 101%| Dmg 60 | | Lvl 4: Ev 43%| DR 50 | | Lvl 4: 54 Mv | HP 696 | -------------------------- When you successfully defeat the force of Raiders here, the countdown timer begins. If the Cyclops drops an Eye after it is defeated, be sure to pick it up, as it will allow you to recruit Cyclopses! ============================================================================== 14. Lystis and the Marauders ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat Lystis. --------------------------------------------------------- Your mission in this scenario is to kill Lystis and his men. You will begin in the southeast corner of the map. From here, head west. You will eventually be attacked by Skeletons from the west and Archers from the north. They are all Level 3, and the Archers have a LONG reach, so be careful! Continue west. After a short time, you will find an Icon of Restoration next to the water. Continue west along the river to find ANOTHER Icon of Restoration. Be aware that if you take this Icon, you will be attacked by a flock of Eagles. They are not a great danger, though. Finally, continue even farther west to score an Icon of Power! Now head north until you come across a white pillar. There are more of them nearby. There is also a group of Skeletons here, which you should kill. You will find two very valuable treasures here: Ambrosia, and The Talisman of Steropes. This will let you pass by Poseidon's thunder later in this scenario. When you reach the far northwest corner of the map, head east. When the ground starts to turn green, you will see a stone. DO NOT CONTINUE EAST! If you do... well, let us just say that lightning will not need to strike twice... If you want, you can follow the line of stones south and east. It will lead to a fountain. Clicking on the statue will cause it to talk. It offers to give you hints for the low cost of 100 gold per hint. When you are ready, use the and The Talisman of Steropes and proceed past the stone barrier. The amulet will protect you from lightning damage for 30 seconds (protect does not mean immunity). Lightning will strike from the sky five times. Head to the east once you are within the stone barrier. You will find Lystis the Cyclops, as well as some pirates. Kill them to end the scenario. ============================================================================== 15. Cyclops Lair ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Survive. 2.) Recover your ships. 3.) Retrieve an object of power. --------------------------------------------------------- Treasure hunting on Cyclops Island? What a marvelous idea! (not!!). You have been stranded on an island inhabited by Cyclops, and you must escape before they kill your party. The treasure is on the far side of the island, but guess what? Every time you kill a group of Cyclopses, another group will appear. There is an infinite number of Cyclopses on the island, so my advice is this - don't fight. Run! From the starting point, run north. When you see the remains of a ship, turn and head northwest. On the beach in the northwest you will find the Vial of Naptha. This will also activate the countdown timer. This level is very straightforward and simple, but it may take a few times until you are able to successfully grab the Vial and survive the countdown. Good luck! ============================================================================== 16. Feast of Titans ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Free the prisoners. 2.) Destroy the Cyclops sentinels. 3.) Defeat the Cyclops Retribution Party. --------------------------------------------------------- Now you must save a village from the voraciously hungry Cyclopses. You begin in the northeast corner of the map. Head south along the road. When you reach the southeast corner of the map, head wet. After a short jaunt you will discover a Book of Poseidon. Yippee - more Poseidon musings! Head northeast from the Book of Poseidon and walk north along the other side of the river you just crossed. You will find a fountain on your way north which will yield a Golden Apple if it is clicked on. There is another Golden Apple a bit farther to the north as well. Now return to the Book of Poseidon and travel northwest. Along the way, you will see the remains of a stone wall. Soon you will reach the village. The villagers are nowhere to be seen. However, you will be warmly welcomed by some Cyclopses and Bears. When you reach the northern exit out of town, turn and head northwest. Follow the mountains until you reach the western edge of the map. Now head south. You will fight with some Cyclopses along the way. You will also find an Icon of Restoration. Now return to the northern town entrance and travel north. You will soon reach the enclosure that houses the villagers. The Cyclopses are readying them for dinner, and the villagers are NOT guests. Before opening the gate and freeing them, you should head northwest until you reach the corner of the map. Here you will find some Ambrosia. Have you been hoarding this stuff yet. You should be! Now return and free the villagers. The gate is somewhat tricky to open, but if you keep hitting it from every angle, it should open. Be prepared - when you open the gate, a group of Cyclopses and Bears will come from the southwest (originating from near the location of the Icon of Restoration). It is best to leave the villagers in the enclosure, and send your party southwest to deal with the menace. But be sure that none of the enemies sneaks by you and begins attacking the villagers - they will die quickly. To finish this scenario, you must gather the villagers together, (notice that you can control them) and return with them to Homah. This will activate the countdown timer. Good job! *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "The mortal's end draws near.

Hydra's Bog ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Break the curse on the tree. 2.) Kill the Hydra. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: Elemental --------------------------------------------------------- Homah will be here to once again give you your mission. This time, you are to lift the curse that has befallen the area. You will immediately be attacked by a new and powerful enemy - the Elemental. From Homah, head south. There will be several splits in the path, but you should ignore them. When you can not go south any longer, head southeast. The path will soon curve to the east. Then the path will become an open area, and the ground will change to a brown color. You will also notice a formation of red trees and a rock. Furthermore, you can hear the sounds of a far off battle. Head north. Continue north along the eastern edge of the map. You will run into Dryope, who will entertain (or annoy) you with her unhealthy obsession with sticks. A bit north of Dryope is a Golden Apple. Now head west along the swamp, following its edge at it curves to the north. You will meet up with Clio. She tells you that there is a Wood Nymph named Gaean somewhere in the swamp. Continue west along the swamp edge. You will eventually return to the starting point, and to Homah. It is here that my party was beset upon by the dreaded Hydra! When you defeat it, it will drop both an Icon of Restoration and an Icon of Power. The stats of the Hydra are as follows: ---------------------------------- | Hydra | ---------------------------------- | Lvl 1: 70% + 75 | Dmg 65 + 3s | | Lvl 1: Ev 65% | DR 55 | | Lvl 1: 63 Mv | HP 2000 | ---------------------------------- From Homah, head northwest until you reach the mountains. Follow the line of mountains until you see a path that cuts between them. Take this path and you will find yourself in the northwest corner of the map. There are two objects of power here: The Charm of Artemis, and Artemis' Bow. Now head south along the western edge of the map. When the path ends, turn to the east. Here you will find a very *cheerful* Swamp Person. Continue east from the Swamp person to find Urania. She is somewhat more encouraging than the Swamp Person. Now return to Dryope. Remember the wonderful stick she was talking about? It is actually the Cursed Tree. Use the Charm of Artemis on the Cursed Tree. This will initiate the countdown timer. ============================================================================== 18. Trial II ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat the enemy. --------------------------------------------------------- You have returned to Calaphon to face the second trial. Once again, you must defeat Poseidon's forces. They have gotten stronger since his first defeat. The layout of this level is almost exactly as it was the first time you visited here. For starters, head north. When the path branches off to the north and west, you will be ambushed (similar to the first ambush, but the enemies are stronger and more numerous). When you have defeated the enemies, you can head north to read the Book of Poseidon. After you peruse the book, you should head west. There is another force of enemies waiting for your party, and they have set up barricades in front of them. The barricades prevent many melee units from attacking them all at once, and that makes this group of enemies particularly difficult to defeat. Bring the full strength of your long range fighters and your Appeals to bear. Pass through the barriers once the enemy is defeated. You will enter an open area with a path to the northwest and southwest. The northwest path leads to a Panacea. Follow the southwest path. This path turns into another open area. You will notice the narrow path that runs between two buildings. This time it has a single guard blocking it. Be careful - this is no ordinary guard. It is Talos, the super-guard! It is NOT necessary to kill him in order to proceed. If you try to pass him, he will attack your party, but once you have passed a certain point along the narrow path heading south, he will give up the chase. If you do decide to fight him, here are his stats: --------------------------- | Talos | --------------------------- | Lvl 1: 90% | Dmg 70 | | Lvl 1: Ev 10% | DR 70 | | Lvl 1: 63 Mv | HP 3000 | --------------------------- Talos has the most hit points of any single enemy in the game, including the final enemy! However, he is not nearly as difficult to kill. Whatever you decide to do with Talos, you should head south using the narrow path between the two buildings. This will deposit you in front of the blue-roofed temple. Head east from the temple, and take out the enemy force waiting for you, and you will receive an Icon of Power. Continue all the way to the east, then head south. Take out the soldiers located here and you will receive an Icon of Restoration. Now return to the blue-roofed temple. Head south from the temple. Much like last time, there is a large group of Poseidon's troops here. As you are about to finish off the last of the enemies, you will suddenly hear Poseidon's voice. -------------------------------------- "You will pay for this, mortal! See how you like Tartarus! Mwa, ha, ha..." -------------------------------------- When the soldiers are all defeated, the countdown timer will begin. Congratulations on defeating Poseidon's forces for a second time. However, do not get too comfortable - he still has ONE more enemy for you to fight... *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "This mortal is blessed with the "But what if it defeats me? Athena's luck of the gods, but even that boasting invades my sleep. The gods is not infinite. I can't believe whisper behind my back, praising this it has reached my second mortal.

Doesn't it?" Page 5 ------ "I mean, he's a god, I'm a god. Gods help one another, right? Correct? Yes. It's a rhetorical question, don't answer. He will not abandon me." ============================================================================== 19. Poseidon's Greatest Creation ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 150 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat the Dragon. --------------------------------------------------------- This time, there is no Homah. No Athena. Just your party and a powerful Red Dragon!! The Dragon's stats are as follows: ---------------------------------- | Dragon | ---------------------------------- | Lvl 1: 75% + 25 | Dmg 70 + 5s | | Lvl 1: Ev 60% | DR 60 | | Lvl 1: 63 Mv | HP 2500 | ---------------------------------- This battle will take you awhile. Wear him down with everything you've got. Use your strongest units, and also use your Appeals liberally! If you manage to defeat the Red Dragon, you will be treated to another short movie. On to the third and final leg of your epic journey! ============================================================================== 20. Lava World ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Obtain the ring. --------------------------------------------------------- Okay, here is the deal. Poseidon is becoming quite desperate to defeat you, and he has cast your party into Hades!! Your primary goal will be to escape the land of the dead. But it will be neither easy nor quick. Your first task is to seek out the Ring of Ourbouros, that it might help your escape. This scenario is primarily an open field filled with a slow and steady stream of Skeletons. There are usually only a few to deal with at any one time, but more will always follow. From Homah, head west. As you travel west, either along the northern or southern edge of the map, you will notice some pillars. If you find one along the northern edge, there will also be on south of it; think symmetry. What you want to do is to destroy these pillars (or arches, as the game calls them). There are 4 in total. Continue heading west. When you reach the far western end of the map, you will see the image of a skull on the floor. If you have destroyed all the pillars, you will see a ring at the mouth of the skull. This is the Ring of Ourbouros. When you pick up the ring, lava will begin to spill out of the mouth of the skull. This lava is DEADLY - do not touch it! As soon as you grab the ring, IMMEDIATELY race back to Homah as quickly as possible. The lava will continue to follow. Once you reach Homah, you will need to use the ring on her. This will activate the countdown timer. Continue to avoid the lava until time is up. Phew! ============================================================================== 21. Hades Realm ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Escape from the Underworld. --------------------------------------------------------- You will start this scenario in the southeast corner of the map. Clio is also nearby. It appears that Hades wants you to retrieve the Amber Amulet. The trouble is that it is around the neck of Cerberus, the three-headed dog! Northwest of Clio is Eurymakhos. Got Golden Apples? Better buy some - just in case. Head west from Homah. You'll see a Cyclops on the other side of a bridge. DO NOT kill him! You will see why soon enough. Cross over the bridge. Hades is there, and will basically restate what Clio has already told you. Now backtrack and head north from Homah, crossing over the bridge. Do not kill the Cyclops stationed here, either. Head north for awhile, and you will meet Agammemon. He tells you that the Cyclopses and the bridges are linked - killing the Cyclopses also destroys the bridges. From Agammemon, head west until you reach the coast. Then turn and follow the coast north until you reach a bridge. Cross over it. Now follow the coast north again. It will curve to the northwest. Cross over the bridge heading north. Take the next bridge going west. Now head straight to the west. In the northwest corner of the map you will find Cerberus. Its stats are as follows: --------------------------- | Cerberus | --------------------------- | Lvl 3: 110% | Dmg 78 | | Lvl 3: Ev 78% | DR 55 | | Lvl 3: 72 Mv | HP 780 | --------------------------- When you kill it, you will find the Amber Amulet on its corpse. Head east from here and cross over the bridge. Now head south, crossing over that bridge as well. Follow the coast to the west. It will curve to the south. When you reach a bridge heading west, cross over it. Continue following the coast to the south. You will reach another bridge; cross over this one as well. Continue east, crossing over another bridge. Now walk on over to Hades and use the Amulet on him. This will end the scenario. ============================================================================== 22. Hammer and Forge ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat Atephemus (Hesterus). 2.) Keep the enemies away from the Forge. 3.) Use the Hammer on the Forge. --------------------------------------------------------- You will start this scenario in the lower southwest corner of the map. Some Cyclopses will immediately attack you. There is also a Forge nearby. DO NOT let the enemy reach the Forge, otherwise your game will end. You should consider leaving a portion of your forces behind in order to guard it. Head northeast from Homah. You will cross over a land bridge. At the same time, you will also be attacked by Doppelgangers. Oh, joy! After crossing the land bridge, follow the coast to the southeast. When you reach the bottom of the map, head east. Just to the north of the southeastern corner of the map is Hesterus, the insecure Cyclops. There is also some gold and Ambrosia nearby. If you take either of these two treasures, Hesterus will attack you. It is for the best, since you will get experience for killing him, anyway. From Hesterus, head north. Upon reaching the riverside, you should turn and head west. Continue to follow the river as it curves to the north. When you cross a land bridge, follow the coast to the north to find a group of Cyclopses. When you kill all of them, you will find some treasure, including Hephaestus' Hammer. If you want, you can walk east along the coast. At the far eastern side of the map, you will find an Icon of Power. Now retrace your steps and cross over the land bridge near where you got the Hammer. After crossing the land bridge, head west until you reach the western edge of the map. Now follow the coast to the north and you will find an Icon of Restoration. Now all that is left to do is to make your way back to Homah. Then use the Hammer on the Forge. The countdown timer will begin. Excellent work! ============================================================================== 23. River Styx ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat the Harpy who is impersonating Homah. --------------------------------------------------------- NEW RECRUITABLE UNITS: Large Spider --------------------------------------------------------- You will start this scenario in the northeast corner of the map. Head west and defeat the group of Spearmen. Now follow the river south to the bridge. Next to the bridge is Urania. She will warn you about the area, and particularly about the Fury Tisiphone. Now cross over the bridge. Continue south. You will encounter the Neried, who will tell you more about the underworld. Continue south and cross over either one of the two bridges that are there (they both lead to the same place). Now head south until you are in the lower southwest corner of the map. Do not break open the crate that is there - unless you LIKE fighting Skeletons. Now head east, crossing over the bridge. After crossing the bridge, you will have to make the choice of continuing east or heading north. First, head to the east. You will encounter Homah, but it is actually a Harpy impostor. Be ready to fight! Now backtrack to the bridge and head north this time. As you travel north, you will meet Hippias. When you are done with him, continue going north. Once again, you will find two bridges, and once again it does not matter which one you cross over. After crossing over to the north, you can cross a bridge heading west onto a small island. Here you can talk with Wussley. Now backtrack to the dual bridges, this time following the coast to the east. As the coast curves to the southeast, you will be attacked by Harpies, Skeletons, and Archers. Be very careful, as they are all very strong! After the battle, continue to the southeast until you reach the eastern edge of the screen. You will encounter some Minotaurs now. Destroy them and head north along the eastern edge of the screen. You will come to a bridge heading east. Take out the Minotaurs first, and do so quickly. Lurking on the other side of the bridge are some Level 5 Archers. They will have no problem hitting you from VERY long distance. Once they are defeated, cross over the bridge and head north. You will come to a small structure that is being guarded by Archers. Simply defeat the guards and enter the structure. This will bring the scenario to a close! ============================================================================== 24. Styx II ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Return Castor's sword. 2.) Get out alive. --------------------------------------------------------- You have almost escaped the clutches of Tartarus! Only one more stage to go. From Homah, head east over the bridge. Click on the fountain and you will receive 2 Waters of Lethe. Now return to Homah and head north. As you travel north, you will encounter Hades and a troop of Skeletons. DO NOT attack the Skeletons. Talk to Hades, and he will give you some advice. Head northeast from Hades and you will meet up with Castor, who has lost his sword. Cross over the bridge that is next to Castor and head north. You will reach a stronghold after crossing the bridge. Enter the stronghold. You will be set upon by a variety of soldiers, as well as a Harpy. When you defeat the Harpy, it will drop some Mistletoe. You will need to collect 4 Boughs of Mistletoe in order to escape from Tartarus, so be on the lookout. Continue north, exiting the stronghold. When you reach the northern edge of the screen, turn and head east. Defeat the Skeletons that attack you. Next, break open the crates. You will receive some gold, Ambrosia, another Bough of Mistletoe, and the Heroes Brand (Castor's Sword). Return to Castor and use the sword on him in order to return it to him. Next, retrace your steps so that you are standing in front of the Stronghold. From here, head east - SLOWLY! When you see the stream flowing north and south, STOP! If you send any unit over the stream - The River Lethe - they will lose their memory. More importantly, you will lose control of them. You will also notice that there is a statue along the right wall of the Stronghold. Take one of your two Waters of Lethe and use it on the statue. You can now safely cross the river! Once on the other side of the river, you will find a fountain that yields an Icon of Restoration. Head east and you will encounter a Harpy, a Gorgon, and some Archers. Kill them to receive a third Bough of Mistletoe. Finally, head to the north, where you will encounter a group of Gorgons. Defeat them, then break open the nearby crate to obtain the last Bough of Mistletoe. Now head south and cross over the bridge. Next to the bridge is a fountain. Clicking on it yields an Icon of Restoration. Continue south and cross over the next bridge. To the south is Charon, the ferryman. Use the Boughs of Mistletoe in Charon (you must use each individual Bough on him). Once the fourth one is used, the countdown timer will begin. Congratulations! You have escaped Tartarus. Your journey is almost over!! ============================================================================== 25. Trial III ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 300 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat Nestor. --------------------------------------------------------- You did it! You have escaped the Underworld, but you must now endure the third of Poseidon's trials. Just like the other two times you have visited Calaphon, start by heading north. When the path splits to the north and the west, you can certainly expect an ambush. This was one of the most difficult battles when I played. You can continue north after the ambush to read the last of the Books of Poseidon. After reading the Book, head west. The path will open into an area full of Harpies! Dispatch the, then head northwest if you need a Panacea. Otherwise head southeast. The path will head northwest. Once again, Talos is guarding the path. His stats are the same as before. This time, though, you should seriously consider defeating him. Defeat Talos and take the narrow path between the buildings. This will once again lead you to the blue-roofed temple. You can take the traditional detour east and then south in order to pick up a couple of last-minute items. Otherwise, head south from the temple to face a HUGE group of Swordsmen, Spearmen, and deadly Archers. Good luck defeating them. Well, now that you have bested all three of Poseidon's trials, you have successfully defeated the god of storms, right? Almost. Poseidon has *one* more trick up his sleeve... *************************************** Book of Poseidon *************************************** Page 1 Page 2 ------ ------ "The final battle draws near. "These mortals would traverse my seas Well, I confess that I have without paying homage to me. I shall actually come to admire the become the laughingstock of Olympus. mortal's courage and fortitude.

Wrack and ruin shall cover the earth and together we shall do what must be done!" ============================================================================== 26. The Dragon's Revenge ============================================================================== --------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTIVES: Total Exp: 150 --------------------------------------------------------- 1.) Defeat the Dragon. --------------------------------------------------------- You must once again face the Dragon. He has returned, and he is more powerful than ever! He will also fully utilize his fire breath attack which is very, VERY powerful! His new stats are as follows: ----------------------------------- | Dragon | ----------------------------------- | Lvl 4: 108% + 25 | Dmg 101 + 5s | | Lvl 1: Ev 60% | DR 60 | | Lvl 2: 63 Mv | HP 2750 | ----------------------------------- Hopefully you have amassed a large supply of Ambrosia throughout the course of the game. I would recommend three for each hero. If you manage to defeat the Dragon this time, the countdown timer will begin, while Poseidon rages in the background. Congratulations!! You have finished Invictus: In the Shadow of Olympus. ============================================================================== Unit Statistics ============================================================================== Below I have created a long chart which contains the statistics for all the units in the game. This chart will cover their statistics from level 1 through level 4. You will be able to see the final result of investing precious time and gold into a unit type without going through all the trouble. The chart is in alphabetical order by the unit's name.
